How To Get Rid Of Double Chin & Jowls
What to do about Jowls? How to get rid of a double chin? These Are questions we get asked all the time. Though anatomically, these question may seem to be related, they are not. We will explain the reasons and treatment options for both of these conditions.
Double Chin Removal Cannot Be Done Non Invasively
Clients, especially females, often exaggerate the double chin in their 30s who never had a double chin before. Double chins don’t spontaneously combust with ageing. Hence it is vital to understand what a double chin is. See the picture below. That is a double chin, usually congenital, and the issue is too much fatty tissue in the region. The treatment involves removing the fat.
Double chin removal treatments that work.
PDO Threads For Face Slimming
PDO Threads are now widely popular for double chin removal. These threads also give jowls definition. PDO threads are minimally invasive, which helps to lift the sagging and loose facial skin. It promotes the generation of collagen and elastin as well as lipolysis. However, the amount of lipolysis required for actual double chins requires fat dissolving injections.
Aqualyx is a fat-dissolving injects made from plant material. They are very effective for double chin removal. A typical course is 4-6 injections with a 14-21 day gap in between each.
If you don’t mind going under the general anaesthetic, then surgery with liposuction is the gold standard. The surgery is performed under local anaesthetic most of the time.
Jowls Will Not Go With Facial Exercises
Most commonly, we get people presenting and worried about their double chin like the one below. A skin pinch will not reveal more than 2-3cm diameter. A skin pinch of 2cm in this area is just skin, not fat. So what happens here?
With age, there is a loss of elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid. Fat pads in the face descend, and jowls start to appear with loss of jawline contour. Another common problem is localised fat underneath the chin area with loss of definition between the face and the neck. This fat collection causes the jawline almost to disappear.
Losing facial fat volume causes the skin along the jawline and chin to droop. The jawline definition is compromised, and the chin appears worse than it is. It is not strange to find clients focused on the chin, which doesn’t seem too bad, and neglect the heavy jowls.
Treatment Options For Jowls
Simple, replace the fat in the jawline and lift the jowls back to their original place. This treatment with filler is beneficial only for mild to moderate jowls. Advanced jowls will require surgical reposition. Dermal filler composed of hyaluronic acid is trendy for this treatment. We at Cosmedocs are trainer of PDO thread, but perform them with caution. The type of dermal filler plays an important role as well as the quantity. The area concerned have volume loss can that can be measure in a tablespoon. One ml filler is a fifth of a teaspoon.
Dermal Fillers For Jowl Lift
Dermal fillers provide the ideal jowl lift. The cause of early jowls is the sinking of the face. This usually follows by sagging of the face. Arresting the sinking process resolves the sagging. Jowl definition improves by replacing lost volume in the mid and outer face.
The Nefertiti Lift or jowl reduction using Botox involves relaxing some of the lower face & neck’s depressor muscles that pull down, hence allowing the opposing levator muscles to lift. It works well for very early jowl.

Botox is highly effective for improving facial contours, especially to do away with the signs of ageing. Small amounts of botox placed along the jawline relax the muscle pulling the jawline down. The ideal age to start this is in the late 20s and early 30s.
